Invisalign is a virtually invisible solution, using clear aligners that gradually move your teeth towards the smile you’ve always wanted. They are comfortable to wear and easy to live with. You visit your doctor every 6 weeks to check your progression and get new aligners. Average treatment time is about 1 year.
